Stewart Happy C/Hanukkah! (plus a song) (12) ADD: Eight Candles (Malvina Reynolds) 22 Dec 00


Here's another Hanukkah song by Malvina Reynolds

EIGHT CANDLES  — Malvina Reynolds

(chorus before each verse)
Eight candles shine for the Maccabees.   Dm A7 DmA7Dm
Eight candles shine for the Maccabees.   Dm A7 DmA7Dm

Down from the mountains with Liberty's sword,   F C7 F A7
They came like the flame of the Lord.          Dm C7 A

The tyrant was routed with all of his men,
And the temple made holy again.

Hanukah's children will never forget
The glory that shines for us yet.

(chorus after each verse)
Dance the horah, light the menorah, F   Gm
This is the time of joy,   C   F
The road to freedom we take today,  D7 Gm Dm
With the Maccabees leading the way. A7    Dm
